OK. Let’s Try this AGAIN.
In 2018 Focus Features released the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor telling the story of the famed Fred Rogers and his beloved show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. The Film was met with overwhelming love, praise and support, bringing people back to their childhoods, and demonstrating the power of good that can come from an honest and sincere person.
Well, ALMOST everyone gave it love, praise and support. Critical and Audience praise wasn’t enough to convince The Academy to let the documentary in to the nomination picture, thus being crowned the biggest snub of the Oscars last year.
Sony, apparently, will have a response. Let’s take the Man who has been dubbed “America’s Dad” and let’s have HIM tell the Story of Fred Rogers through full story medium. It was big news when it was announced, but the trailer is here. Will this Story of Mr. Rogers make it to the oscars? Let us know in the comments.
